The Best of 2023 – Transitioning into retirement

In this special edition of Edelman Financial Engines’ Everyday Wealth™, we’ve curated some of our favorite interviews with experts around the topic of transitioning into retirement.

First, Jean and wealth planners Isabel Barrow and Andy Smith talk to Dr. Riley Moynes on how to navigate what he calls the four phases of retirement. Then, Jean interviews Marcia Mantell about Social Security claiming strategies, particularly in regards to some of the unique challenges women face on this topic. And finally, Jean speaks with Gordon Hartman about how his love for his daughter helped him reimagine what it means to be retired.


Ms. Chatzky receives cash compensation for acting as host of the Everyday Wealth podcast and for related activities and therefore has an incentive to endorse Edelman Financial Engines and its planners. That compensation is a fixed sum paid on an annual basis; and reimbursement for certain expenses. The amount paid each year does not vary, is not based on show content or any results-dependent factors (e.g., popularity of the show).
